Hi again. I'm after advice re. a MyAsics Plan pls. (I've know there have been similar posts in the past so apologies if I've just failed to see the answer there).
My plan shows a 2m Interval training session at a speed of 10.07-10.58 mins/mile. The instructions are 'This is an interval training. Run 1km intervals at a consistently fast pace, and then jog for 2-5 minutes. If you need more time to recover, take it. But don't be tempted to walk, keep running even if it's slow."
Does this mean that the 10.07 -10.58 is the average across both the fast and slow bits or is it the target for the fast bits? I did this today and didn't prepare well - I set up the intervals on my watch but didn't set up alerts to slow down if I was running too fast. As a result I ended up doing the 1km fast bits too fast (between 9min and 9.5min/miles) but was too worn out to jog in between so I walked those bits. As a result the average is about 11 minute miles.
If I take my watch's recorded times for the 2miles of faster running it would be significantly faster (but that would seem weird as MyAsics presumably can't assume everyone records the run on another device. I may just have answered my own question!).
Any advice from an experienced MyAsics plan follower gratefully received. I think the lesson to myself is probably to slow down the fast bits to build up my endurance to jog the slow bits but it would be nice to get that confirmed.
